Excellent second in the series of Alex Rutledge, crime photographer. Interesting characters and lots of local Key's flavor.

This book sets up the series of Key West based crime photographer. Corcoran gives great detail about Key West in the 80s and 90s. Since I lived in the Key's in the 80s and visited often after I left, it offers a nostalgic trip back. The characters are interesting but the crimes are rather pedestrian. If the Key's scene interests you or you have a past in the Key's you will like this book. If not, there are better writers out there.

Not the best in the series by a long shot. But continues the same theme with Alex Rutledge, crime photographer solving murders in South Florida.
